19.2.3 Describe the use of electrolysis in electroplating IB Chemistry HL

19.2.3 Describe the use of electrolysis in electroplating. Solutions containing metals ions below hydrogen on the "Standard Electropotential" list (i.e. a positive standard electrode potential) will be plated onto the negative electrode in electrolysis. The metal ions are reduced to metal atoms. (This is a simplification -- but good enough for IB)A thin coating of another metal may be useful...Au coating is very conductive, Ag looks nice, Cr provides protection against corrosion.Dr Atkinson was plugged into a "sisylortcele" machine and recovered completely.
